Holidays at Home

My favorite time of the year is when I can come home to the warmth of Miami for the holiday season – even though the leaves don’t change and the “magic” of a white Christmas is absent, there’s something even more special about calling the tropical paradise home.


However, the heat can be a pesky disturbance, especially now that the city is becoming much more walkable, so preparing for a long day of prancing from Serendipity Creamery to Illesteva’s newest outpost in Wynwood is key.

My latest routine involves little to no makeup (lately I’ve been skipping the foundation and just doing eyebrows and mascara), and Dove’s new Dry Spray Antiperspirant. When I first received it, I was very hesitant. The thought of spraying myself with something wet, the very feeling I’m trying to avoid, made me apprehensive. Also, one of my biggest pet peeves is getting residue (from makeup or deodorant), on my clothing. But I took a deep breath and sprayed.

The spray actually goes on DRY immediately. After a whole day of walking around, it was as fresh as when I first put it on, and there was zero residue on my shirt. It actually felt like I wasn’t wearing anything at all. My skin felt clean, and not the slightest sign of irritation in sight. As someone who really values and invests in her clothing, the best part is not having to worry about getting residue on it.

I’m so ready to be back in the heat at the end of the month — see you in two weeks, Miami!
